Camp Whitley Memories
The year was 1928. Lindberg received a medal of honor
for his transatlantic flight. Mickey Mouse made his first appearance in a
sound cartoon. Shirley Temple was born, and Whitley County saw the founding
of a local family tradition, Camp Whitley.
Stephenson, an educator with the Columbia City schools, created Camp Whitley with the goal of providing an outdoor learning experience for
youth of our community. For more than 90 years, Camp Whitley has
upheld the vision and traditions began so long ago.
In celebration of our upcoming 100th year of operation, the Board of Directors and Staff are requesting stories and
memories of former campers to compile into a booklet. The staff would
like to conduct as many personal visits as possible, but we are willing to
also interview over the phone or compile stories from the form below.
If you are a former camper, or know someone who has been a camper, and would
like the Camp Whitley memories to be documented, please
